Hey Captain Devin Fans!

We’re on track for our May delivery of the Captain Devin books. Demery has been editing diligently, and I’ve added a couple of illustrations to improve the layout. All the color is nearly done.

Yesterday, we took the story out for a test drive and read it to Ms. Fletcher’s first grade class at Fremont Elementary. The kids loved it, and we were pleased with how the new version performed.

I think their favorite part was when Pelican had a whole octopus in his mouth. There were LOLs.

The rest of April is going to be spent polishing and formatting the book, and ordering some test copies of the hardback version. Our prototype was printed through Lulu, and is already falling apart. We want to make sure we’re sending you a durable book, so we gave ourselves time for product testing.

Thanks again for your support! The book keeps getting better, and we’re so pleased to be sharing it with all of you.

Keep an eye out for an email from us regarding your contribution details. Some people put in additional funds beyond their backer level, and we want to make sure we get all your orders right.


-Margaret and Demery :)
